printer queue immortal - help!
Help! I have an epson stylus c62 local on a sid box. Mozilla sent it a
raw postscript file as text. THis means dozens of pages of garbage. I
tried to cancel the printjob:
- from CLI as the user whose job it was - failed
- from CLI as root - ditto
- by deleting files from /var/spool/cups - but continues to print
- by deleting files from /var/spool/lpd/lp - job now disappears from
lpq, but continues to print.
Switching off the printer and back on has no effect - it just carries on
Restarting lpd and cupsd has no effect. Rebooting the computer has no
effect (yes, I got that desperate). How can I stem the flow of
printout? The data must reside somewhere...
